Episode 50: Tom vs Morgan (Donnie Darko vs Temple of Doom)

The boys try and convince each other they are wrong for hating two classic cult films: Temple of Doom and Donnie Darko. Who will win?

For our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different.

We picked a classic cult icon each that one of us loves but the one hates, in the hopes of convincing them they’re wrong. Considering we usually agree on all things geek, it was a hard task just finding two things in the first place.

In the end, we plumped for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (which Tom hates) and Donnie Darko (which Morgan hates). But… WHO. WILL. WIN?

What’s worse? Willie Scott screaming for two hours or pretentious timey-wimey nonsense?

Hear our pitches as to why the other one is wrong, and find out who came out victorious.

Episode 49: Ranking the Santas

The boys feel all festive by ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks ever.

Ho, ho, ho!

For this year’s Christmas special, we’re ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks of all time.

Our five are: Mel Smith (Father Christmas), Edmund Gwynne (Miracle on 34th Street), Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street), Tim Allen (The Santa Clause), and David Huddleston (Santa Claus: The Movie). But which order will we pick them?

Plus, plenty of other honourable mentions, and a brief history of Santa as we know him. See, it’s an educational show too!

Merry Christmas!

Minisode: Stan Lee Tribute

Morgan and Tom celebrate the life of a geek icon.

Like every pop culture geek in the world, we were very sad to hear about the passing of Stan Lee at the age of 95 this week.

For this minisode, we celebrate the life of the Marvel Comics icon, and explain just why he was so important to us and millions of others.

Episode 47: Freaky Film Franchises 2

Tom and Morgan go back to their roots and dissect four downright bonkers film series.

Just like episode 5 way back when, we’ve taken two film franchises each and dissected just how bonkers they have got (and are still going to this day!).

Morgan teaches Tom all about The Marine and Universal Soldier franchises, while Tom takes Morgan through Air Bud and Puppet Master.

Try and keep up, things are about to get thoroughly confusing (and merry).

Episode 45: Jurassic Park

Tom welcomes Morgan to the ongoing world of the Jurassic Park series.

OK, it may have been a month or so since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came out, but here’s our Jurassic Park episode!

Here, Tom welcomes Morgan to the world of the Jurassic Park series, from the original book by Michael Crichton, to all five movies, video games, toys and more.

We also discover the dodgy Carnosaur franchise, the cancelled TV series that Spielberg couldn’t be bothered to look at, and what Tim and Lex Murphy did next.

Hold onto your butts, this is one epic ride..
